How to update Azure WebJob SDK packages without huge load of dependencies

If you create a new WebJob and want to use the latest version of the WebJob packages. You can just press "Update" button, but this installs many dependencies we don't want.

Here is a guide how to install/update only the required packages.

  1. Install Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.Abstractions
  2. Update WindowsAzure.Storage to latest version > 9 (9.3.1 for example)
  3. Uninstall System.Spatial, Microsoft.Data.Services.Client, Microsoft.Data.OData, Microsoft.Data.Edm (all with orange logo)
  4. Update all packages to latest version

PS: My WebJob was created as a .NET Framework 4.6.1 project.
